    Here's the latest pics of Jethro and Ellie Mae. They are now 6 1/2 months old. Not a crow or an egg outta either one of them. [​IMG] Can't tell anything by their crests because they have had haircuts recently to aid their vision.

    Sorry for the poor quality of the pics. Hard to get a pic of one individual chicken when you have 30 surrounding you, trying to eat the camera, your coat, etc.

    Jethro in drag was Jethrine, so change that birds name. You have two females. Eggs will be coming soon.

    Miss Elle Mae is adorable - and the 'tude is the icing on the cake. [​IMG]

    Hmm, two girls. Cool. Jethro will have to stay Jethro though. I'm too old and senile to keep changing names.

    I also see girls...very lucky, assuming that's the case. [​IMG] You mentioned fighting previously...Silkies pack alot of 'tude. Even the females.
